Painting Stormcast Eternals for my Order Army

Just a quick one today – this is where I’ve been putting my hobby time recently: I’ve been painting Stormcast Eternals for my order army! Mostly I have devoted my time to starting the slow and gradual process of NMMing (Non-Metallic-Metal) my Judicators. I’ve actually been stippling them – in a bastardisation of the techniques learned at the David Soper masterclass. The techy painting is really pushing me and I’m finding it quite difficult, as I’m learning my way round a new technique whilst trying to adapt it to ensure I don’t spend 20hours on each model! The aim here is 3hours or less for each ‘Battleline’ troop, maybe 4hours or less for fancier Paladins. I’ve also done a little more work on my Elf Mage/Battlemage Farseer conversion.

High Elf Mage Farseer Conversion

I had so much fun at Warhammer Worlds Heat 3 playing my janky High Elf Dragon list that I’ve decided to continue working on The (turquoise) Twilight Host! I’m looking for excuses to use nice plastic characters (be they Aelf or otherwise), in this article I cover making a High (Aelf) Elf Mage conversion using the Warhammer 40k Eldar Farseer model.

I picked up the beautiful Eldar Farseer model from the Warhammer 40,000 range with a view to what is basically a head/arm swap. The head swap was simple, the arms were far more complex than I had intended upon though. The fantastic Empire Battle Wizard box came in very useful, as well as some Eternal Guard/Wyldwood Ranger Vambraces.

Khorne Conversions and Plastic Scraping!

So I’ve been working on a new army and Khorne conversions for the past few months. I’m not revealing any painted models just yet as I would like to present a finished army this time round. My last “finished” army was my mixed chaos which attended some 15 tournaments whilst almost being finished on and off for a year. By the time it was done, it had been seen and no one was really fussed about seeing it!
